T61p Client Security Solutions + Password Manager + Two Operating Systems

2008-10-10, 4:26 AM



    I am running both XP and VISTA on my T61p.  I use the client security solutions password manager feature for websites and network shares.  Since my model has the biometric scanner instead of entering the user ID and password I just swipe my finger.  The issue is that when I first setup client security solutions it creates some system key that I assume is tied to the security chip hardware.  Once I have it setup and working under one operating system it fails to authenticate me under the other operating system.  It brings up a windows that says, "Verify Identity" / "reason for authentication:  system key recovery"  Why am I not able to use this feature under both operating systems?


Thanks for your time.
